According to your other post, you have 2 versions of Windows installed. I believe your best bet is to start over with a fresh install. Not a repair but a format and fresh install

Why do you have to remove sp3? sp3 updates all files of sp2. So after installing sp3 you dont have sp2, you now have sp3. There can be only one service pack at one time, the latest one.

Press "Pause + WindowsKey", what do you see? Does it say ServicePack 3? or ServicePack 2? Or does it say Service Pack 2+3? :thumbsup:

@sir garmanma

i dont have any background in formatting PC,i dont know the points that should be remember and i dont have the original SP2 CD. and i think this sp3 is not a original.

@sir Romeo29
based on my system properties,in General
System:
Microsoft Windows XP
Professional
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

i want to remove one of them because i have two folders in drive C: which is WINDOW(sp2) and WINDOW.0(sp3),i think...im thinking in the long run,maybe they will conflict and cause system failure...

You have two folder for WINDOWS?

Type this in Run dialog (StartMenu-Run) : "cmd". It will open a command prompt. In the command prompt type "%WINDIR%", the folder you will see is your Windows folder. You can safely delete the a other one. Make sure you have not stored anything in the other folder.

Most probably, you have installed Windows when there was a folder "C:\Windows" already on your harddisk, so setup created "C:\Windows.0" for new Windows installation.

Before trying to delete the non-Windows folder (most probably C:\Windows), just rename it and see what happens. If it is required by some programs? Alsi check its contents, if you need them.

Hope this helps you :thumbsup:
